Teaching is the most important means of creating societal impact since knowledge in business and economics is transferred to the society through teaching and students.

“We wanted to emphasize the central role of teaching at our school by selecting a Course of the Year from each study programme”, Timo Saarinen, vice dean for teaching and learning explains. “At the School of Business we are happy to have many teachers who are very eager to develop and renew their teaching.”
